Valve Announces Steam Link, A $49 Gadget For Streaming PC Games To Any Room In Your House


Steam controllerValve continues its push into hardware, as the company has announced that it plans to release a new gadget later this year that will let Steam users stream games from their PCs to any room in the house.

Valve says the new gadget, which it’s calling the Steam Link, will sell for $49 when it arrives in November. This puts it at half the price of the Razer Forge TV, another mini-set-top box meant to stream high-end PC games. The box will work with Windows, Mac, Linux, and the upcoming Steam Machines, the line of console-like PCs that resulted in last year’s Alienware Alpha and other miniature gaming PCs based on Windows when Valve wasn’t quite ready to go with Steam OS. The device seems intended to sit in the living room, with a max 1080p output at 60 Hz.

The announcement follows the unveiling of the HTC Vive
